Spending Review 2010 - George Osborne’s plans to cut public sector spending

“Public sector cuts could transform Britain’s not-for-profit second beyond recognition”
(Chris Priestley, partner in Withers charities)

Following the Spending Review 2010 George Osborne’s four year plan (2011/12-2014/15) aims to cut public sector spending by a substantial £81 billion. During 2008/9 a third of the income obtained by the charity sector was received from government funding. This is set to dramatically change with expected severe hits of up to £4.5 billion to their funding.

The areas of greatest significance to the charity sector will include:

    * A reduction in revenue grants to local authorities by 26% over the period.
    * Social housing funding cuts by 60%.
    * Local Government reduced by 27%.
    * Culture, media and sport reduced by 24%.
